Sora, I love short ribs. The following are amongst my favourites:

http://www.epicuriou...-233706?mbid=RF (yes, they contain chocolate, but it is sort of almost mole-ish).

Didn't that bacon article say something about bacon being good for sugar withdrawal?

So happy you are getting excited about Thai chicken! I have never, ever used curry powder in Thai dishes but instead make all my pastes from scratch with kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, chiles, etc. Curry powder to Thai chicken is as authentic as Spam is to bacon. Who needs curry powder? I LAUGH in the face of curry powder. :lol:

I know what you mean. Both are equally good, actually, and completely different from one another. Let us know what you decide! Short ribs should be its own food group, as bacon should be. :)

Luck! and if it is edible, please share? thanks, toots. I am not crazy about the overwhelming taste of curry powder (I think it tastes like soap) , although I love Thai dishes....go figure...Nice superman. :)

I am thinking #1. If I am risking a migraine then I might as well go for wine and chocolate!

Definitely not around here but when my husband takes me to the nearest city (three hours away) every two months on culinary escapes (as we call these trips) we find the lime leaves (fresh and frozen) at an Asian market. We stay in a tiny boutique hotel that is so charming. It only has about 12 rooms I think and each time you get a different one. They are all plush but very different from one another as the building is old (for our standards) and all higgledy piggledy. It is a treat, that is for sure. So, we book the sweet hotel, make dinner reservations at amazing restaurants and go food shopping. We hit the Asian market, the Latino shop, the huge Italian Centre, large indoor Farmer's Market, and gluten-free shop. We usually come home with an enormous haul but this is what we love to do. This is our entertainment. Anyway, we are going next weekend and I cannot wait. Though I'm in lots of pain we are going. As you know, I always lie down in the Jeep en route, but nothing will keep me away from those stores.

How do you like that for a short concise answer? :lol:

You are sure to love it. It will grow on you and then you will become addicted like me. Heck - once we had something similar only with blue cheese added! FANTASTIC. So, if cheese causes migraines as it used to me, go all out...

L2T and Irish (Irish knows) in one of my past lives ;) I lived in Thailand and it was an all day process to make our curries. Shopping for ingredients, sitting on the floor and pounding the spices and cooking it. Then eating it, the best part.

I can actually smell it right now. Must make curry soon.

This looks soooooooooooo darned good. Sometimes you've just got to have a great burger. And I know yours will be no ordinary burger.

I did not know that! Or if I did I had forgotten. :( Obviously you know your Thai curries like no other! Anyway, there is something so gratifying and therapeutic about making curries from scratch, isn't there? I made one last week. I don't know which I like better - red or green. I'd have to say both.

We always had red when there but now days I prefer green. We used to make red with those giant lovely Thai scampi and fresh pineapple chunks. So delicious, try it if you can get some scampi on your shopping trip.

Here is the article that was in my inbox this morning -- like I need more reasons to want bacon ;)

http://articles.merc...30103_DNL_art_1

This is an interesting article. I know that occasional bacon makes my heart happy! :wub:

MMMMMM! On our culinary trips we take along our coolers, of course, so will be on the lookout for scampi (which will not be the freshest as the nearest sea is about 2,500 miles away). But the combination with pineapple sounds wonderful.

Menu change -- the recipe I had called for lime zest -- my curiosity has spiked for some ingredients L2T has posted -- so a field trip to the asian market is now on my to do in the morning list.

Tonight will be enchiladas with cream/green sauce -- need to make an extra cassorole for a neighbor and this will do nicely.

zu-noodles and cilantro "pesto" for me

Sinful Choc Cake for men and neighbor.

Choc "Mousse" for me :)

I loved it ! Compared to some of my long answers on the board, it was just a telegraph. :D

I felt as if I were right there with you shopping. Sounds like fun.

and by the way, only you can use the term " higgledy piggledy" and get away with it.

:huh:( now, if I had said that, Adalaide and/or Karen would have been all over it like a cheap suit.)

Your expeditions are much like our trips to NYC..I like to hit .the wine shops in particular..then, pack up the car and haul it all back home.

Gotta keep our kitchens and pantries stocked!

and for added inspiration, this guy (whom I think resembles Johnny Depp a bit) would like

to apply for a position as a cabana boy....

eew, no! and let me tell you why:

our son goes out with us to shows (most times at bars) so last saturday night, we are out seeing a local band reunion and (YES they stock redbridge for me!!) some woman, younger than me, but not tooo much younger, is dancing beside me and making motions at harry (son, 26 - yeah, he's a hottie, lolz) who is standing in front of me close to the stage. i made a face at her and she hollers in my ear: don't you just want to put him in your pocket and save him for later? i said: NO! at that point harry turned around and tells her: that's my mom......

now. the guy who plays 'brady black' on "days" - he looks like he can wield a shovel while fixing a mai-tai...... ;) oh, hell, he doesn't hafta do anything. except get naked :D1047132-T800600.jpg

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
